Core Values


At the core
of everything we do

Our core principles are the foundation for every decision we make and your how-to guide on what you can expect when working with us.

Live Humbly.

Being humble is more than a mindset. It’s a daily practice of servant leadership. That means we put others before ourselves. We never see tasks, people, or goals as being beneath us. And, we have the maturity to admit our mistakes and learn from them. Never will you see us pushing people down. Instead, we empower each other to be the best we can be by sharing ideas, challenging the status quo, and celebrating wins as a team rather than personal accolades.

Be Accountable.

Transparency is everything when it comes to owning our work. Good or bad, successful or not quite hitting the mark, we own our obligations, live with integrity, follow through on promises and commitments, and always strive to do the right thing… even when it’s hard. We’re trustworthy, reliable, and consistent. And if something doesn’t go as planned, we own the fact and work together to find a solution, doing whatever it takes to get things back on track.

Stay Hungry.

We believe being lifelong students and learners is the key to success. We’re always looking forward to the next goal, growth stage, and innovation so we can make an even bigger impact on the people we serve. Our insatiable desire for self-improvement shines through as we continually look for ways to improve the foods we source, the dishes we create, and the process we use to deliver our many services. We’ll always go the extra mile to push your program to its maximum potential.

Work Smart.

It feels good to put in a day of hard work. It feels even better when we know we worked smart. We meet our goals without wasting valuable time and resources. We lean into our strengths, work to improve our weaknesses, and utilize our teammates to complement our skillsets. Side-by-side, we come up with solutions, develop new ideas, create new ways of doing things, and adapt our strategy to align with day-to-day environments.
